SUSAN ELIZABETH BURRELL
Age 51, of Batavia, departed this life peacefully on Monday December 12, 2011 at Strong Memorial Hospital. Born August 29, 1960 to the late Thomas J. & Celestine (Terrell) Burrell, Sue was the youngest of five children, preceded by two brothers Paul L. and Thomas M. Susan grew up in LeRoy, where she was educated at LeRoy Central School and was a proud member of the Class of 1978. Susan was employed for a short period of time at the LeRoy Village Green Nursing Home. Susie was a quiet, dedicated woman who loved the Lord, her family, and in particular her great nieces & nephews. She loved to laugh and enjoyed life to the fullest. She was active within the Batavia community, where she served on the board of Directors for the Genesee Region Independent Living Center, Inc. for numerous years. Through her years of community service, in November 2002, she received from the New York State Senate, the "Community Spirit Award", Certificate of Special Recognition and citation from the New York State Assembly for her continual volunteerism and advocacy for individuals with disabilities. Susan never let her disability limit her lifestyle, as she could be seen "scooting" around town in her electric wheelchair by many, always with a smile, kind word or good deed for others.
Loved and cherished by many, Susan leaves to mourn her sisters, Ann (Burrell) Loatman of New Jersey & Dawn Livingston of Rochester; 5 nephews John Loatman, Benjamin D. Loatman, Bryyan (Tyran) Loatman, Derek Loatman and Robert Adams; 3 nieces Syreeta Loatman, Dominique & Noel Adams; devoted, dedicated and very special brother-in-law Edward Loatman; 4 great nieces Jone', Aniyah, Aaliyah, & London; 6 great nephews Julien, Jayden, Bryyan Jr., Anthony Jr., Jonathan & Maxwell along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
